From humble beginnings as the human spill-over of a beloved Melbourne watering hole to its now continent-spanning presence across the Tasman to Singapore and beyond, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is coming home this January and thanks to the generous folks at Rdio you and a friend could be lapping up live performances by some of 2013’s most exciting emerging acts – and doing it all VIP-style.
We’re giving away 1 x VIP double pass to Laneway in each city (Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth) plus a 12 month Rdio subscription for each of the 6 winners. To win, email us with your best MS Paint rendering of what you will be doing if you win the tickets, along with your full name, contact details and the leg of Laneway you want to attend. To get an idea of what we’re looking for, browse these examples from a previous comp. They’re simultaneously glorious, terrible and rich in vision. We can’t wait to see what kind of unique artistry you come up with. If in doubt, refer to Terms & Conditions.
